Quick Fire Hydrangea Not Blooming

shorelinebabsAugust 10, 2010

I planted a Quick Fire hydrangea in dappled sunlight in April, and it did not bloom this summer. Does anyone know if it needs more sun? It is shaded by a pear tree, and also by the house. It is getting dappled light, but it is not getting any direct sun.

If anyone knows about QF hydrandeas and can tell me if I need to move this plant, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Quick Fire hydrangeas require more sunlight than it is getting to flower. I had the same experience and moved it into a spot with more sun and the next season was rewarded with lots of blooms.
